I was attending ICIN 2010 in Berlin. My keynote on “Global Future Internet Research” can be found on the conference website (link below).
Worthy conference with a good number of talks/attendees. Particularly interesting I found the mixture of people from research and those working on innovation and/or general management.
+ IaaS (network+storage+computing) seen as good business model for telcos in the future
+ Value of enforcing an extra revenue share from Google questionable since 25bn (Google) versus 1000bn (Telcos) is peanuts (CEO of Northstream).
+ Appstores/developer communities for telcos of limited value since Appstore mainly a tool for device sales (mobile device manufacturers)
+ Telco””””s shall better look into many smaller business models rather than looking for the next SMS-like killer app (H. Arnold, T-Labs)
The slides of the keynote speakers are meanwhile available for download
